High Lonesome Sound (1996)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Lead Performance: Vince Gill; Genre: Country

He's evidently trying for a harder sound on High Lonesome Sound than on his recent mega-hits, but he's too tame-hearted (or bottom-line conscious) to risk letting the rough edges show. If Gill shut up and played his guitar, he'd be a lot poorer — but the world wouldn't be. B-
